Shimla to Kinnaur Trek Over Buran Ghati Pass

Shimla to Kinnaur Trek Over Buran Ghati Pass

Duration: 12 Days/ 11 Nights
Price: $ 1473
Best Season: May-Oct

Buran Ghati Pass 4545M connects the village of Barua with Janglik village of Pabbar valley. The Valley of the Pabbar river is accessed from Theog on the Hindustan Tibet Road and Rohru (131 Kms from Shimla) is its main town. It is also a good location for trout fishing, sightseeing and trekking in the area. Lying in the lap of virgin nature below the breathtakingly beautiful Chanshal mountain range, the Pabbar Valley is a haven for offbeat travelers and lovers of nature and adventure. This trek takes you through tall standing forests, the lush green alpine meadows of Dayara and Litham thatch, a serene looking Chandranahan lake, before bringing you to the high altitude terrain of a Himalayan Pass. Chandranahan Lake lake lies in the Chanshal range and is fed by a series of natural springs. Surrounded by snow for long periods, it is the source of the River Pabbar.  The Pabbar River is the westernmost river that drains east to the Ganges. The trek over the pass is difficult, but enjoyable and well rewarded at the end.

Shimla  is the capital of the northern Indian state of Himachal Pradesh. It is bounded by Kullu in the north, Kinnaur in the east, and the state of Uttarakhand in the south-east. In 1864, Shimla was declared as the summer capital of British India. It is home to a number of buildings that are styled in the Tudorbethan and neo-Gothic architectures dating from the colonial era. Attractions include the Viceroy Lodge, the Christ Church, the Jakhoo Temple, the Mall Road and the Ridge, which together form the city centre. The Kalka–Shimla Railway line built by the British, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is also a major tourist attraction.
